Demand for LTC Workers Remains Strong in May

Dave Kyllo


There are 20,388 open jobs this month in the nursing care facility (including SNFs), assisted living, and continuing care retirement community (CCRC) sectors this month according to the latest CEB TalentNeuron statistics. The number of open jobs posted nationwide by direct employers held relatively steady over the last two months.

The CEB TalentNeuron statistics also show an estimated 2,101,000 potential candidates in the nation’s workforce whose skills likely match the qualifications being sought by long term care employers – a decrease of 85,000 compared to April. Figures show that 2,052 direct employers are competing for candidates in May – a slight decrease over April figures. The average number of days a job is posted this month is 34.

Finding qualified employees is one of the greatest challenges facing long term care providers. The AHCA/NCAL Long Term Care Career Center is designed to help members be competitive in attracting qualified candidates to fill their health care job vacancies.
